Mark;

Perhaps it would be easier to give the user the ability to refresh, instead
of automatically refreshing. I'm not aware of any settings in either
Netscape, Mozilla, Opera or Internet Explorer that give the user the ability
to not refresh if a page is coded to do so.

Hi list,

I have a set of web pages at:
http://www.weather.gov/
Click on "forecast" or "current," or some other weather information link.

The page refreshes the map every 300 seconds. How do I give the user the
option to turn this refresh off. Better yet, I would like to provide the
user
the option of turning the refresh off, and on at will.

The pages are written in:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

The option allowing refresh is:
<meta http_equiv="REFRESH" contents="300">

Thanks for any suggestions.
